Sometimes it seems like summer will never end. But finally that first cool, crisp autumn chill comes along and rekindles fond memories of the cozy, colorful days and nights to come.

If your tween tells you they have outgrown trick-or-treating this year, don’t be surprised. There comes a time when some tweens feel they are too old (or too cool) to join the goblins parading on Halloween night. Putting on a costume feels awkward and begging for treats is suddenly embarrassing. On the other hand, sitting at home handing out treats doesn’t sound fun either. If your tween still wants spooky thrills, think about throwing a lively age-appropriate party as a way to keep your young tween happy, entertained and safe on Halloween night.

Autumn is here, the kids are back in school, extracurricular classes are starting up again and families are busy. Camping, hiking and traveling seem like distant memories as we pack the tent away for another year and store the beach gear in the basement. Don’t put your hiking boots away just yet, though. I have three trips for you to do this fall that should be done at least once in your lifetime, if not every year.

Keep it all in check by making the most out of it, having fun and staying on budget.
